NBA Playoffs

Dallas Mavericks +2½ at Oklahoma City Thunder (6 PT):

The Western Conference final is tied 1-1 as Game 3 shifts to OKC. The game opened with the Thunder a 3-point favorite and went down to 2½. The pressure is on Oklahoma City to win both Games 3 and 4 otherwise home court advantage goes back to the Mavericks. Look for Russell Westbrook, benched in the fourth quarter of Game 2, to respond with a big effort and the OKC crowd to play a major factor. OKLAHOMA CITY -2½.   LOSS

Overall record 62-58-1
